Project : Zentangle Bicycle Watercolor
We practiced sketching a real"working" bicycle in class. Now let's design our background.
Homework: Practice zentangles on one side of a paper (looseleaf is fine).
Divide your paper into 10 or more "puzzle pieces". Create a design in each one. It must have repitition of lines and shapes.
What is a zentangle?
The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. We call these patterns, tangles. You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines, simple curves, S-curves and orbs. These simple shapes are the "Elemental Strokes" in all Zentangle art.
